To be fair, we said that we might try it again after the owner took over in the kitchen. So we did. The salsa has gotten better, but everything else was still a bust. The snapper was still bland and not spicy, the chimchanga's can no longer be ordered fuego style, they instead put queso on top. Not a good mix for a chimi. We had ordered fish and chips and they said they were out of tartar sauce, and had been for some time. How do you have fish and chips and not have tartar sauce on hand? The fish was really dry. The server was nice, but the food quality is not very good anymore. It makes us really sad, but our favorite place that we have come to for so long, is no longer the place for us. We will unfortunately not be back, but will instead find a local place to call home.
We have been coming to Fuego regularly for quite some time and always loved the food and atmosphere. Usually the service is fair, but the atmosphere and food made up for it. We recently went again and it has changed. The Fuego Snapper was bland and not spicy at all. The fuego sauce was more like melted Velveeta on the other dishes. The salsa is no longer spicy and lacked flavor. The drinks were more watered down than usual. We asked our server about the change and were informed that the previous cook walked out and the owner is preparing everything himself. While we appreciate having a hands on approach to any business, this is one time that it may not be what is best. We were disappointed with the food and don't want to lose our favorite place. Please go back to the previous recipes. They were much better. We will try one more time. Hopefully it will be worth it adn we won't have to look for a new place to take our family and friends.
Took out-of-town guest for lunch on Saturday, and went early to get a table on the deck overlooking the ocean. Seats were warped. Service was slow, and we had to ask other servers to find our waitress. The Kush nachos were dry and only had 4 slices of jalapenos. It took another 15 minutes to get more of them. The mahi mahi fish tacos were very good. The other meal was O.K. It took 10 minutes for our busboy to locate our server so that we could order another round of drinks. When it was time to pay the check, we had to ask another server to find our check. With good service and that wonderful view, we could overlook average food. Unfortunately we did not have very good service. We'll wait another 6 months and try again.
Stopped in at late afternoon, downstairs bar. Chilly, but so worth the food and margaritas. Ronnie was the best. Chip and salsa was there immediately. Nachos, steak. entree unbelievable. Took home half, since it was so huge. Such a great spot.Go and enjoy.
My husband and I stopped over the weekend and it was wonderful. The food was some of the best I have had. I had the shrimp and grits and it was wonderful. The staff was great and the food was terrific. The manager came by and chatted with us for a while, he was so interested in our opinions and our impressions of the food. It was nice to have a manager that actually cared about his restaurant.
Was there on Sunday Oct 5th and had a wonder seat , but took over 5 minutes to get the gal that seated us to come back to get our drink order. When she did return I ordered a beer and my wife asked if she had any specialty drinks and she brought over a drink menu and said will be back to take her order. Waited 10 min for her return and didn't bring my beer and my wife order a mojito. Another 10 min goes by and she returned with my beer and a mojito with all black mint. The gal said it turned black when muddled, Wife sent it back and got a Cadillac Martguerita. 10 min later she brought her drink back. Never got chips and Salsa.
By this time I was ready for another beer and had to go to bar to get it. 10 more minutes pass to get our order placed for food which was pricey. Another 1/2 hour passes for food to arrive. Finished and had to go to the bar to get our bill and pay it. Took them over 5 minutes and there was a $5.00 error in addition and had to pay more after she put the order in the computer. Felt like $13.00 was to much for a Martguerita, but just glad to finally leave after an 1.5 hour. Never been that upset over a meal.
Service was adequate but the food was way overpriced for what we got. Burger was over cooked and the buns were stale. Greasy, lukewarm fries didn't help. Alcoholic beverage was sub par - didn't even drink half of it. Starting to wonder if the view was even worth what we paid for dinner. Next time we are in town, we will go to the old Manny's. Even though we voiced our unhappiness with the quality of the food, no attempt was made to take anything off our bill.
